the 2014 handover to afghan authorities. our pentagon correspondent chris lawrence has been looking into this. what's being considered for a u.s. role in afghanistan after the scheduled pull-out? >> reporter: if you thought 2014 was going to be the end of u.s. troops' involvement, that does not look to be the case. although publicly pentagon officials say it's too early, our source, a u.s. official is telling us that there are several options being discussed inside the pentagon, one of which is to keep about 10,000 u.s. troops in afghanistan past 2014. a small number of those troops would be special operations forces that would be dedicated to counterterrorism missions. the rest of the forces would either be training or advising afghan troops or providing medical support and air support, things like that. there are other options with fewer troops, some with more troops. but this one fits right in the middle of that spectrum. he also told me that one of the deal-breakers when it came to iraq, immunity for u.s. troop, in other words, that they wouldn't be prosecuted under local laws l
in the region. we're going to talk to the pentagon and get some new details. by not breaking down. consider the silverado 1500 -- still the most dependable, longest-lasting full-size pickups on the road. and now we've also been recognized for lowest total cost of ownership -- based on important things, like depreciation, fuel, and maintenance costs. and now trade up to get a 2012 chevy silverado all-star edition with a total value of $9,000. from outstanding value to standing the test of time, chevy runs deep. if we want to improve our schools... ... what should we invest in? maybe new buildings? what about updated equipment? they can help, but recent research shows... ... nothing transforms schools like investing in advanced teacher education. let's build a strong foundation. let's invest in our teachers so they can inspire our students. let's solve this. i have obligations. cute tobligations, but obligations.g. i need to rethink the core of my portfolio. what i really need is sleep. introducing the ishares core, building blocks for the heart of your portfolio. find out why 9 out of 10 lar
and shaped by general jones who has unique experience of serving in the pentagon and in the military and as the national security adviser to the president. he made a point that i was familiar with based on my experiences, that we had all these different agencies and departments and people all over the government as well as in the congress that had parts of the energy package but it never had a way to be brought together to take a look at what should be our energy policy and came up with this idea of the council which we are recommending where you pull all of the different departments chaired by the department of energy secretary, agencies, that will reach out to all the different interested parties to make sure their views are being taken into consideration. to do this quadrennial agency review somewhat similar to what they have done at the pentagon. it is very different from what they do at the pentagon. it is a technique that i have observed that works and is helpful for the department of the defense. talking about a strategy, a broader view, and then through the report get into th
in waste, fraud and abuse at the pentagon. when you look at the huge tax cuts of millionaires and billionaires, we need to make sure we do not extend those tax cuts. when you look at the oil subsidies that oil companies received, there are many ways to move forward and stop this human cliff from occurring, but we do not need to go with seniors, we do not need to do this on the the backs of low-income individuals and the poor. it doesn't make any sense. it's not fair and it's morally wrong. >> i think it's morally wrong and it's not fair. there is a moral obligation to help the poor and those trying to recycle back into the economy. but do you feel confident that the democrats will hold the line for the less fortunate? >> i feel very confident the democrats will hold the line for the least fortunate. when you look at what's happening in our districts, we have people who are unemployed. we have the long-term unemployed. and we have people who want to work. we need to create jobs and invest or resources in job creation. that's how you we turn the economy around and reduce the def
there will be big cuts to the pentagon but not likewise cuts to medicare and other big entitlement programs and they believe that is another part. on the tax issue the republicans are playing defense. if they don't act the white house is ready to blame this on them in terms of going off the cliff. after coming out of the election where the republicans nuclear a hit the white house hopes they will not want to take another big blow after the election so quickly. >>shepard: powerball sales are skyrocketing, upping the jackpot and the odds someone will win the big surprise tonight. it is at $550 million. that is a record for powerball. the odds are slim of swinging, 1 in 75 million but zero chance if you don't buy. people are dreaming. >> i felt my whole life i was supposed to be rip. >> pay the bills and house off. not have to work. ever again. >> i have 17 charities first. they come first. >> i want to buy a house. >> how will you spend it? >> take a day off. >> officials say this is a 75 percent chance now that someone or multiple somebodies will win tonight. rick is on long island, new york
morsi. jennifer given is live at pentagon. what was the reaction to the bombing. >> reporter: there was strong reaction and condemnation from the white house, the spokesman at the white house jay carney as well as from the state department and the secretary of state hillary clinton who arrived about two hours ago in egypt where she has been meeting with the egyptian president, morsi. certainly her job more difficult in the wake of this suicide bombing down in downtown tel-aviv. it's the first bombing essentially in the last six years, since the end of the palestinian uprisings, the intifada. it's going to make her job a lot more difficult. aides have said she planned to be home for thanksgiving. it's not clear whether she'll ned to go back to israel, back to the israelis and palestinians after meeting with president morsi in egypt. here is the statement she issued in the wake of the tel-aviv bombing, quote the united states strongly condems this attack and our prayers and thoughts are with the victims of israel. eupl closeli am closely monitoring reports from tell louisiana s
to our pentagon correspondent barbara starr. barbara, what are you learning? >> well, wolf, north korea says it is pursuing trying to launch a satellite into space. but intelligence services around the world doubt that that is true. this satellite image of a north korean missile launch pad was just snapped in the last 24 hours. u.s. government officials and private experts say it shows the same types of preparations including trucks and fuel tanks not seen since april when a long-range missile failed seconds after launch. north korea claimed then it was just trying to launch a satellite. the new digital globe image and this one taken just days before don't yet show a missile. but with these kinds of preps, a launch could happen in about three weeks if a missile is put on the launch pad according to analysis by digital globe. north korea watchers say the new leader, kim jong-un may be responding to internal political pressure from hardliners. >> on the other hand, he may also want it himself. he may decide it's the right kind of provocation just before the south korean president election

that is given, by getting rid of outdated weapons programs. the pentagon keeps telling washington, stop appropriating money for this. they are not asking for it and they do not need it. money going to large businesses with mailing addresses in new york, chicago, and san francisco, not even to working families. finally, we need tax reform. that is fair, asking the wealthy to contribute their fair share. i support the agreement and i encourage my colleagues to do so as well. >> the gentleman from michigan, mr. levin. >> i now yield one minute to the distinguished chairman from tennessee. >> thank you. i have voted twice to raise the debt ceiling. in may, i voted with about 90 other people. i voted this past weekend for leader reid's program. i cannot vote for this program. the first series of cuts we know, the second we do not know. i fear is a toad -- a trojan horse. that is an odyssey and journey that this country should not have to traverse. this country has been taken to this point by a group of ideologues that do not like government, want to reduce it, are reducing it, want to hurt t
